If I can't fly, let me sing. Or, in other words if I can't be in Disney, let me talk about it !

As i think you said, if you have a private catered event, your Escape minimum would rise to $7,500 anyway so with a few add ons you would soon reach the $10,000 and a Wishes event would give you much more flexibility!!
Good luck whatever you decide!!

SO - I think we are going to stick with the Escape package and just do a catered brunch after the ceremony..

BUT - we are changing our date to May 3, 2012!

I am going insane

So, after MUCH thought and MANY converstaions, DF and I have decided to go with a Wishes Wedding. Since Disney changed the policy of adding on 5 extra guests for the extra $500, we really don't have a choice in order to include those most special to us.

I contacted DFTW to see if we could set up a site visit in October when we are there. I missed the call yesterday and I was so upset However, Michelle emailed me with TONS of information so I hope we can get the ball rolling!

We are so excited..of course I get sick to my stomach thinking about all the money we are spending but DF says that I deserve it since I waited so long to get married Now we just have to stay as close to 10k as possible!!

Just glad we finally made a decision on wishes vs escape!

We got back on Thursday night from our vacation! Had lots of changes after our site visit:

We are now doing WP for the ceremony, Narcoosees for reception and still keeping Sago Cay for the dessert party!!

We also had an Engagement shoot with Randy Chapman! WOW is all I can say - he was amazing!! Can't wait to see the finished product!

I also had my hair and makeup done by Beaute Special. Laine did all of it and she was outstanding!

Just wondering - does anyone have any pics of receptions held at Narcoosee's??

Are you going to be doing a TR about your site visit? I'm going for mine next month and I'm so excited! I'm glad to hear you liked Beaute Speciale...I think I'm going to book them for my e-pics as well. I can't wait to see how yours turned out!

Hey everyone! Sorry I have been MIA. I had surgery in October and I'm finally up and around.

We got our e-pics back from Randy - WOW..over 500 pics! I'm hoping that I can work on them over the holidays and post some. If anyone wants a sneak peek, they are on Randy's facebook page (Jill & Pete)!

I sent Michelle an email making sure she had our top 4 dates/times for the lottery which will be coming up shortly..wow, time flies! I'm crossing my fingers that we get our date and hoping that our early ceremony time of 10am will help with that.

We have decided we may have to up the guest count to 40 (from 30). I'm okay with this so that we can include more of who we want there..of course I'm sure not all of the 40 we invite will be able to attend.

Anyway, I feel like as soon as we get our date, I can actually start planning!! I hope to work on our STDs and the first newsletter after the holidays! (my wonderful brother is going to help me on those!)

Thanks for sticking around with me

Just wanted to post some pics from our engagement session with Randy! No news on the planning end of the wedding - just anxiously waiting until the 1st week of January to see if we get our date (crossing fingers!)
